According to documents, sent to US safety regulators by BMW, wiring inside the luxury vehicle’s fuel pumps may not have been crimped properly, which can cause wires to become loose, melt a connector, and cause a gas leak. This can cause an engine to stall because the fuel pump stops functioning.
The German car manufacturer stated that it is not aware of any injuries or crashes related to the defect. BMWs in South Korea, China and Japan have been recalled for similar issues. Fuel pump modules will be replaced by BMW dealers free of charge.
